Eric Arceneaux has an excellent bunch of lessons on youtube for singing.
Here's a few:

I never used this exercises but I've personally discovered how relaxed breathing really takes the strain out of your neck when singing. Watching these videos, I realize how effective and organized my vocalizing will be if I follow these systematic steps. It is also a great suggestion that we do this everyday, as he said as least 20 minutes a day. Most of us don't really bother to do it and when we sing we jump right into it without warming up exercises. I have increased my vocal range by almost an octave just be singing regularly, but when I'm on vocation and forget to do vocalizing, I just notice how my vocal cords tighten and how tough it is to sing with a clear effortless voice after a long break of not singing.
Thanks for these videos. Eric Arceneau is one of my favorite rNB singers and I do have his music CD. I did not realize that he is also a great technical vocal coach.

Besides the usual singing technique tips, one of the best pieces of advice I was ever given was this:
Before a gig or a recording session, drink lots of water (till you pee clear), to keep yourself hydrated and the moisture in your throat. Then keep the fluids intakes up throughout the gig/session. It's too late to start trying to rehydrate once your throat has dried out and you are already singing.
